Hippocrates, a Greek physician (circa 460 to 377 B.C.) is traditionally revered as the father of Medicine. Few details of his life are known to us. It seems that he was the son of a physician and that he traveled widely in Greece and Asia Minor, teaching and practicing his art of medicine. The Hippocratic collection of writings is generally attributed to him, but is more likely that it constituted a library of the medical school at Kos where he taught. The collection deals with clinical subjects, anatomy, diseases of women and children, treatments through diet and herbs, prognosis, surgery and medical ethics. The latter gave rise to the famous hippocratic oath which is sworn to by modern physicians. Measures 10"H x 5.5"W x 6"L.
